Back cover text

"The most important analysis so far of the greatest mystery of the 20th century."
—Springfield Daily News

The Report on Unidentified Flying Objects by Edward J. Ruppelt answers these and many other questions that have baffled previous reporters:

What American general is convinced the UFO's are spaceships from other worlds?

Have USAF jet-fighters ever fought with flying saucers?

Was the Maury Island Mystery a hoax?

Did flying saucers ever really buzz the White House?

Are there authentic photos of UFO's?

What is the true story behind the Lubbock Lights?

"Others who have written on this subject have intimated they were conferring with officials in the inner sanctum. This book, which may well become the bible of the UFO devotees, makes clear that Ruppelt is the inner sanctum."

Interior text

Let's get down to brass tacks about "flying saucers"

Here are the facts:

More than 20% of all sightings are classified as "Unknowns." These are objects seen in our skies that cannot be identified as balloons, man-made aircraft or meteors, and that cannot be attributed to weather or atmospheric illusions. Neither can they be explained away as hoaxes or hallucinations.

If they are none of these, then what are the "U.F.O.'s"?

In this meticulously documented book, Edward Ruppelt gives first-hand quotes of the opinions of the top military brass, the most eminent scientists, and hundreds of reputable pilots. Study their comments carefully — the answers they come up with may well determine humanity's future.
